Re: .270 win?

I hunt deer in mich. The field i hunt is 800 by 800 yrds. so shooting flat is top on my list. As .277 is overkill in my eyes it does shot as flat as a .243 and 25.06 with a little extra whap. But a little flatter = less critical distance guessing on the fly. Then we get into recoil vs accuracy give and take. So for me 270 win. lands in my comfort zone. My .02

You have the possibility of shooting a deer 800+ yards and you consider a .277 an overkill?

I see one other problem with that statement, if you are a handloader, a 243win with a 105 berger shoots a lot flatter than a 270win with 150 berger vlds and may still be a little behind the 25-06 with a 115 berger.

Re: .270 win?

Yep! I will let the Biggest buck of my life walk on by if it's out of my comfort range. I wont shoot past 300 yrds because i haven't practiced past that. Same with bow 20 yrds max. hunting conditions. Nothing feels worse than a bad shot wounded animal i cant hunt anymore- game dying in a ditch somewhere ain't for me.

If your not sure get closer (i think)

Yeah, that's just general info according to them, in reality the 270 has a horrible maximum point blank range. It would do good if it was case big enough to push the 165 Matrix vld at a decent speed.
